Rubin, Alan M.; Rubin, Rebecca B.
Communication Research--An International Quarterly, v9 n2 p287-313 Apr 1982
This investigation considered description, association, and inference regarding television viewing patterns and motivations of aging persons. Among its findings, this study concluded that television--aside from its important role in disseminating information and entertainment--also functions to occupy idle time and to fill a companionship vacuum for older persons.
